I have eaten a lot of cake in my days, so I was slightly skeptical when La Fabrica Girona owner Amber Meier told me the hummingbird cake I was eyeing as I placed my chai latte order would be the best cake I had ever eaten. Although it was only 10am, and I typically try to hold off on eating cake until at least lunchtime, I decided I should probably test out Amber’s claim. She handed me a cup full of cake and a wooden fork – and I went to town.
I’m happy to report that Amber was absolutely correct. The hummingbird cake is as delicious as promised, hands down the best cake I have ever eaten. And now you can eat it, too – even if you can’t make your way to La Fabrica.
Melissa Mostert is the women behind La Fabrica’s hummingbird cake. She says:
“I’ve always loved baking since I was little and have always been a natural at doing it. I used to watch my mother in the kitchen always creating something. Then I decided to take a subject at school where I’ll be able to learn a bit more about baking. Then I met my husband, and his mother is an amazing baker. She creates the most beautiful, delicious cakes and cupcakes for weddings, birthdays and baby showers. I occasionally helped her making these cakes and cupcakes, so I learned a lot from her by watching and helping.”
